New reparations program for French Holocaust victims

A new reparations program for victims of the Holocaust and their heirs, administered by the U.S. State Department, is now accepting applications. The deadline to apply is May 31, 2016. The program only applies to survivors who were citizens of France and were deported by train from France to a camp or ghetto in another Nazi-occupied country (mostly in 1940). If the survivor is deceased, the spouse or children may apply, regardless of when the person died, even if he/she did not survive the Holocaust. For more information, contact Joan Margolis at Jewish Family Services of Greater Hartford: (860) 236-1927 or
